Episode 3 "The Cross Tattoo" just released on Monday and I wanted to give you a personal note in regards to the story-line so that there wouldn't be any confusion. *Just beware*, if you haven't heard the episode yet, this will contain *spoilers*.
During the course of the story Winter determines that a gang called the "Thols" may be connected to a local Catholic priest, her suspicions are confirmed and Father Donald turns out not to be what he represents. I want to be clear this isn't saying anything against Catholics but is an isolated reference only.
Having a real relationship with Jesus Christ is what defines a Christian and that's what matters most. That's a big part of what Shadows and Daylight is about. You see, the two gangs, the Prots and the Thols actually serve as an allegory for two of the major influences in Christianity today. But more specifically they serve as an allegory for when people take things to the extreme, but they don't by any means represent all of any group.
The stories in Shadows and Daylight try to convey what happens when the assumptions of man are taken too far and leave Jesus out of the picture. We hope to show characters, on all sides, trying to sincerely search for the Truth and we pray that anyone in this search will find the Truth (aka Jesus Christ). Our effort is to show that our denominations don't save us, Jesus does.
I just wanted to make sure you understood, and didn't feel that any Christian denominations are being made out to be the bad guys. Thanks so much for listening and reading this posts!
Please let me know if you have any questions.
